Difference between create a new farm and join an existing farm



Difference between create a new farm and join an existing farm

I am writing this topic because, many of the administrators who entered into the SharePoint recently will get this query, what makes difference between them? We see this option after the installation of SharePoint and while running the Products and Technologies wizard.

create a new farm: This option is used to create a new SharePoint installation .(This can be a standalone installation having all the roles (Web front end(WFE), Application server and database server on the same machine). This is where the new configuration DB will be created in SQL

join an existing farm: This option is used to add a new role to an existing SharePoint installation(In farm scenario, we can add an application server or WFE by joining the machine to an existing farm). This is where the server will be connected to already created configuration DB.

In case if  your still have SharePoint environments running on SharePoint 2010:
Mainstream support for SharePoint 2010 will end on October 13th, 2015:
https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/lifecycle?p1=14944
 
After this date only security fixes will be provided for SharePoint 2010. That means if you are running into an issue after October 13th which is caused by a problem in SharePoint 2010 and which has not already been addressed before you will no longer be able to request a hot fix.
Not the best situation if you are using SharePoint 2010 as a business critical application.

Upgrade from a SharePoint Server 2010 Standard CAL to an Enterprise CAL

This article provides information and procedures on how to upgrade from a Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 Standard client access license (CAL) to an Enterprise CAL

Enable Enterprise features on existing sites

To convert the license type to the Enterprise CAL, you enable the Enterprise features on the SharePoint Central Administration Web site. Any new sites that you create will automatically have these features. However, existing sites do not receive the Enterprise feature set until you perform the steps to enable the features on existing sites. You have to perform these procedures only one time to update all sites in the server farm.
This procedure uses a SharePoint 2010 Timer service and may take a long time to complete, depending on the number of sites in the server farm.

To enable Enterprise features for the server farm 

1.    Verify that you have the following administrative credentials:
o    To enable enterprise features, you must be a member of the Farm Administrators group on the computer that is running Central Administration.
2.    On the Central Administration Web site, click Upgrade and Migration.
3.    In the Upgrade and Patch Management section, click Enable Enterprise Features.
4.    Enter the product key, and then click OK.
After you have enabled the features for the farm, you can enable the features on existing sites in the farm.

4.    On the Enable Features on Existing Sites page, select the Enable all sites in this installation to use the following set of features check box, and then click OK.

To enable Enterprise features on existing sites by using Windows Power Shell

2.    On the Start menu, click All Programs.

4.    Click SharePoint 2010 Management Shell.
5.    At the Windows PowerShell command prompt, type the following command:

Enable-SPFeature [-Identity] <FeatureID> [-URL] <site URL>
Where:
o    <Identity> specifies the name of the feature or GUID to install.
o    <URL> specifies the URL of the Web application, site collection, or Web site for which the feature is being activated.

Verification:

Use the following procedure to verify that the enterprise features have been enabled on existing sites.
